Newcastle in the last few days have been linked with a lot of players in different positions, and while obviously, they will not all arrive at Newcastle this month it does give us a hint about who Rafa will go after in the summer.
Rafa will want to upgrade most positions in his team which has been struggling in the Premier League so far this season.
That’s always assuming we will still be a Premier League club by then and Rafa is still our manager.
We hope both of those will become true this summer and we’ll breathe a (very) massive sigh of relief if and when both of those events happen.
Bruno Perez – 27-year-old Roma right-back
There is a report in Italian newspaper Il Temps that Newcastle have enquired about Roma right-back Bruno Peres.
West Ham United are the other club who have enquired about the 27-year-old who only moved to Roma on loan in 2016 and made the deal permanent last summer.
The Brazilian right-back moved to Italy and Torino from Santos in June 2014.
Bayern Munich and PSG are reported to have been interested in the 5ft 10ins players, and he said to be available for a reasonable £8M.
Bruno could be one of Rafa’s (many) transfer targets this summer.
Perez has played 16 times for Roma this season, and in total, he has made 60 appearances for the Rome club with 2 goals and 5 assists.
When he was at Torino he played 68 times with 7 goals and 12 assists.
